July 7, 2020 - IBASE Technology, a manufacturer of network appliances and embedded systems, announced its FWA8600 1U rackmount network computing appliance based on the Intel Xeon D-2100 processor product family and with up to 25 GbE ports. This scalable system is designed for managing data driven workloads and enabling levels of performance in enterprise network security, Unified Threat Management and WAN optimization applications.
The FWA8600 supports up to 128GB RDIMM with four DDR4-2666 DIMM sockets and one Intel I210-AT Ethernet controller. The device comes with network interface card (NIC) slots to accommodate up to three IBN cards with 8x GbE ports each and one IBN-P401Q card for a maximum of 25 GbE ports. For I/O connectivity and expansion features, it offers a PCIe x8 slot, an M.2 expansion slot to interface with SATA 3.0 and PCIe x4 bus for high data throughput, as well as two USB 3.0, and an RJ45 serial console with LCM display for operation. LAN bypass is available in certain configuration.
Furthermore, IBASE has verified the solution as an Intel Select Solution for uCPE that integrates the Ubuntu operating system and Intel Xeon D processor. These verified designs will benefit CSPs, telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs), internet service vendors (ISVs), and enterprises in implementing uCPE and SD-WANs technologies with enhanced network performance and flexibility.
